Dear Brothers & Sisters,
By now you are certain to have heard the whispers that Revolution is brewing. For too long, this country has been at the mercy of the self proclaimed “elite” few. They control the banks, the corporations, the media, they control every politician you’ve ever voted for, essentially controlling legislation and monetary policy to suit their collective needs. Every war waged is a war to feed their lust for power, every protest squashed, is a win for injustice and classist segregation. The war has already begun. As punishment for the outspokenness of a few, foreclosures have taken place, civil rights have been erased, lives have already been lost. They’ve made their first tactical strike to suppress your right to free will. The time has come for us to strike back. We are the 99%. The time has come for the majority to rule.
"Human freedom involves our capacity to pause between the stimulus and response and, in that pause, to choose the one response toward which we wish to throw our weight. The capacity to create ourselves, based upon this freedom, is inseparable from consciousness or self-awareness." ~ (Rollo May, 1975, The Courage to Create, p. 100)
Labor unions, communists, “community organizers,” socialists, and anti-capitalist agitators have all joined together to “Occupy Wall Street” and protest against “greed,” corporations, and bankers. But despite efforts to portray the movement as “leaderless” or “grassroots,” it is becoming obvious that there is much more going on behind the scenes than meets the eye.
Billionaire financier George Soros’ fingerprints, for example, have been all over the anti-Wall Street campaign from the very beginning. And this week, the infamous hedge-fund boss publicly announced his sympathy for the protesters and their complaints about bailouts — despite the fact that he lobbied for even greater unconstitutional handouts to bankers in 2009.
Left-wing financier George Soros is at it again. While he may claim he’s not behind the Occupy Wall Street protests, funding from his foundations says otherwise. Soros threw his support behind the movement at a United Nations panel on Oct. 3, “I can sympathize with their grievances.” But he does more than just sympathize, his foundations funded groups that back the protests and steer their “progressive” message.
Organizations that joined the protesters were granted more than $3.6 million from Soros’s Open Society Foundations. On Oct. 5 there was a “march in solidarity with #occupywallstreet” that listed seven such groups out of the 16 overall supporting the protest. Those seven organizations received $3,614,690 from Soros’ Open Society Foundations since the year 2000, with more than $2 million going to Common Cause Education Fund, part of Common Cause, and another $1.1 million to MoveOn.org.
